The Mandatory 3 Days Sick Day A Year Costs Us Way More Than You Know
Did you know that the state of California now, by rule of law, makes all business owners give their employees 3 days of sick pay a year?
Wait now, before you get all excited and think “Wow! That shit is awesome!” let me just let you in on a little secret…
Those assholes up in Sacramento want you to think that they are awesome for making business owners do that.
Our country is already soft as it is and now they are going to allow a bunch of lazy ass workers to take advantage of businesses.
You and I both know, people that ain’t sick are gonna uses those days all the damn time. And that shit is gonna cost business owners a shit ton of money, which naturally, raises the price on the simple things in life that we buy, like a sandwich or a piece of fried chicken over at the corner deli.
How you ask?
Let’s break down some simple math, shall we?
Let say you and I are some real go-getters and have managed to set up a sweet sandwich shop that sells some pretty bomb-ass BLTs and some mouth-watering roast beef.
We’ve spent the last 3 years building our sweet gig up and have even managed to hire 4 employees full time. Are profit margins are good, thinner than our turkey slices, but still, a modest profit.
Let’s say we are some awesome bosses (which I know we would be!) and we pay our full-time employees more than minimum wage, kinda like In-N-Out here in California likes to do.
So, let’s say we pay them $13.00 an hour.
With the added costs of workers comp, unemployment insurance, social security, and all that other bullshit, our $13.00 an hour employees cost our little sandwich shop $18.00 an hour total.
So, you got $18.00 an hour times 4 equals $72 dollars an hour.
We give them all 40 hours so that makes it $2,880 a week in pay we gotta fork over to pay our workers.
Grand total we pay for 4 employees for an entire year is $149,760 in total. Damn! I’m good at this math shit!
So, now the good old boys and liberal retards up and Sacramento thinks it would be a GREAT idea to force us to give our employees 3 sick days a year, by rule of law.
They do it out of “compassion” and because “they care” so much about the workers.
They are so sweet, aren’t they?
Fuck no they ain’t!
They do it all for show and to get stupid people to think that they actually care. They don’t care at all!
All they always care about is VOTES and staying in power.
That single law will now cost you and I and our theoretical sandwich shop an additional $1,728 a year in costs.
Now, that may not sound like a lot, but it is money that is completely going nowhere. You and I know damn well, that all those sick days WILL be used up, even when our employees ain’t sick!
You see, when someone runs a business, EVER damn nickel and penny are accounted for. From the post-it notes in the office to the slices of bread we buy for the sandwiches.
You tack on more money to that we as the business owner must pay and account for it will just piss us off!
No way we are just gonna take it outta of our pockets and just give it up!
Look how pissed you get when your cell phone bill us up more than the $69.95 you pay for it every month! You don’t want to pay it and it pisses you off that you have to don’t it?
This is how business owners see this mandatory sick leave pay. It’s bullshit.
It’s a bill they weren’t expecting and now they have to pay for. Imagine the businesses that got 10 employees?
What about 20? 30? 50?
Is it any wonder companies in California pack their shit up and just leave to another state?
It’s these little regulations and shit that cause that.
Now for the businesses that do stay, all they do is jack up the prices on the shit they sell to make up the difference.
Our bomb-ass BLT we sold for $5.99 will now have to go up to $6.99.
So, who loses in that scenario?
The damn customer who already is getting stretched thin with the few dollars they’ve got in their pocket.
This is just another problem California faces with its Government.
They add these types of regulations all of the time to businesses and it hurts everyone in the end.
Just let the businesses do it on their own. Cut regulations. Cut Taxes. Sacramento and the liberal elites gotta stop putting their noses where they don’t belong.
that would make businesses come back, they would hire more, and a lot of these big businesses would offer sick pay as an added bonus to go work for them, not because the law says they have to.
Businesses would have to compete. That’s where “sick pay” was first introduced in the first place!
You think Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were discussing “sick pay” during the Revolutionary War and as the wrote up the Declaration of Independence?
They wanted freedom. They fought hard for the shit.
Now, at least in California, we are slowly giving it up to use a sick day on a Monday morning from a hangover from partying too much Sunday night.
